Psalm 29
Amplified Bible Par ▾ 

The Voice of the LORD in the Storm.

A Psalm of David.

1[a]Ascribe to the LORD, O [b]sons of the mighty,

Ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.

2Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name;

Worship the LORD in the beauty and majesty of His holiness [as the creator and source of holiness].

3The voice of the LORD is upon the waters;

The God of glory thunders;

The LORD is over many waters.

4The voice of the LORD is powerful;

The voice of the LORD is full of majesty.

5The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars;

Yes, the LORD breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.

6He makes Lebanon skip like a calf,

And Sirion (Mount Hermon) like a young, wild ox.

7The voice of the LORD rakes flames of fire (lightning).

8The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness;

The LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.

9The voice of the LORD [c]makes the doe labor and give birth

And strips the forests bare;

And in His temple all are saying, “Glory!”

10The LORD sat as King at the flood;

Yes, the LORD sits as King forever.

11The LORD will give [unyielding and impenetrable] strength to His people;

The LORD will bless His people with peace.

[a] 1 This psalm has been called “The Song of the Thunderstorm,” a glorious psalm of praise sung during an earthshaking tempest which reminds the psalmist of the time of Noah and the deluge (see v 10).
[b] 1 The ancient rabbis interpreted this as referring to the patriarchs. Today many scholars regard this as a reference to God’s angels.
[c] 9 Or makes the oaks shake.
